Whether they be patchy, lopsided, itchy or epic, Movember is responsible for the increase in men sporting moustaches in Australia and around the world. The goal is to ‘change the face of men’s health’ through raising awareness around prostate and testicular cancermental health and suicide prevention. 

As with many great ideas, Movember’s origin story started over beer between two mates in Melbourne. It has since evolved to become a global event, and you don’t need to grow a Mo to participate. If you want to support the cause, you can: 

  • Grow a Moyour moustache can inspire donations, conversations and real change 
  • Move for changerun or walk 60 kilometres over the month for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every year 
  • Host a get-togethervirtual or in person, host a group of friends and raise much-needed funds for men’s health. 

This Movember, we’re highlighting the fantastic research Griffith is doing in the field of men’s health.
